United States and South Korea on Monday launched joint military exercises despite criticism of the northern part of the country and express their protest against testing new weapons.

According to the South Korean Yonhap News Agency, quoted to the military authorities, the joint military exercise is expected to continue for about two weeks to begin the training of simulation-based command centers on computers.

The military authorities intend to tighten the alert level for armed forces, given North Korea’s ability to conduct more missile tests as it has strongly criticized the Seoul-Washington joint military exercises and launched a series of missiles recently.

Dong Meng’s 19-1 exercises were conducted by Washington and Seoul in March to replace the main solution exercises, reducing the scope of the exercises based on the background of the existing diplomatic track with Pyongyang.

South Korea and the United States are focusing their efforts to verify the initial operational capacity to assess the ability of the South Korean army to take command of wartime operations.
